Marine Buffer? will safely raise marine pH to 8.3. It will not raise pH above 8.3 even if inadvertently overdosed. Marine Buffer? is a blended product and is not just sodium bicarbonate or sodium carbonate, commonly sold as a substitute. Such products can raise pH to dangerous levels if not used properly. Marine Buffer? contains sodium, magnesium, calcium, strontium, and potassium salts of carbonate, bicarbonate, chloride, sulfate, and borate. Use Seachem?s MultiTest: Marine pH & Alkalinity? to check pH and total alkalinity. Use Marine Trace? to restore the proper level of trace elements required by thriving, healthy saltwater fish.
DIRECTIONS: Add 1?2 measures (measure included) for each 16 L (4 gallons). Add daily until pH stabilizes at 8.3. This will take from a day to a week, depending on original pH and alkalinity. Thereafter, use biweekly or monthly to maintain a pH of 8.3. If an extensive precipitate forms upon addition of Marine Buffer? that does not dissolve within ~15 minutes, then poor ionic balance was present. A water change should be initiated when convenient before further use of the product. Effectiveness improves with continued use. Do not directly mix with any calcium, magnesium, or strontium supplement.
